Dementia Australia 2 mins read

The 2024 Gold Coast Memory Walk & Jog is upon us, with the much-anticipated event taking place this weekend on Sunday 2 June at Pratten Park, Broadbeach.

Starting at 8am we welcome everyone in the Gold Coast community to join fellow participants as they walk, jog or run to help raise money in support of people living with dementia.

 

Registrations for the Gold Coast Memory Walk & Jog are still open and we would love to see as many people as possible participate to help raise funds and awareness for such an important cause.

 Walk or jog with us. We are in this together. 

 

Sign-up to walk, jog or run or join in as a Volunteer at a Memory Walk & Jog event at www.memorywalk.com.au. Share your Memory Walk & Jog experience on your socials and Donate today to support people living with dementia across Australia.
